For the sake of obtaining their very own Magic Bags, Touya, Minori, Serara, Isuzu, and Rundelhous all set off on their very first journey as a five-member party! Their quest to find the materials soon becomes a crosscountry musical tour, as they find themselves performing live events in all the towns and villages they come across! On their journey they meet a daylight hating vampire, a People of the Land scribe, and a band of fanatics who believe they've unlocked the secret to returning to the real world-- This is their first real adventure alone, without any supervision and no one to bail them out, but will they really be safe in this world that's more dangerous than it seems??
Nearly a year has passed since the Catastrophe, and it seems like no one is any closer to figuring out what exactly happened. But when Minori brings a letter from Roe2, the explosive contents rock Shiroe to his core! These revelations arrive just as an impending war threatens to consume Yamato, forcing every adventurer to decide whether to search for a way home or to throw themselves headfirst into a bloody battle alongside the People of the Earth. Whatever their choise, those hiding in the shadows won't wait before making their moves!
A message has reached the Round Table, and in response, Shiroe and his comrades leave Akiba on a quest to establish exchange with the Continental Alliance. Meanwhile, the summer training camp where rookie players from every guild will hone their skills begins. Minori and Touya (along with others at their level) face failure after failure as they challenge the dungeons. Without Shiroe to rely on, their abilities will now be tested!
Even though peace has seemingly been restored to Akiba, unrest churns beneath its surface. Learning that two of his students--the twins Tohya and Minori--have been bound to an unscrupulous guild, Shiroe makes his bid to bring order to the lawless streets. Are his band of handpicked veterans up to the task...?
The world of Elder Tales was supposed to be fun for everyone, but ever since the 12th expansion pack came out and trapped thirty thousand gamers within its fantastical confines, it's not much fun anymore! Nobody knows how to return to the real world, the food has no taste, and even death is no escape. Since the change, the world has fallen into lawlessness, and a strong guild is a player's only hope for survival. It's amid these dire circumstances that Shiroe sets off across the virtual landscape with his friends Naotsugu and Akatsuki on an adventure of discovery as they try to understand the nature of their new reality. Illustrator Kazuhiro Hara has adapted Mamare Touno's light novel series into a comic that gamers and manga fans alike won't want to miss!

With the revelation that in-game death leads to memory loss of the real world, the stakes have never been higher. And will cutthroat politics destroy tenuous new alliances before the real battle even begins?
Shiroe left Akiba in search of 8,000,000,000,000 gold coins, setting off for the vast north lands. But, what he found there was a warning of a large scale raid about to occur. In Akiba's unstable situation, Shiroe's chosen raid members include the galactic idol Tetora, the leader of Silver Sword who refused to take part in the round table council, Massachusetts, and the man he defeated in Susukino who still hates him, Demiquas. ...Is everything really going to be alright?

Kieli sees ghosts. It's an odd ability for a 14-year-old girl, and it makes her a bit of an outcast at her boarding school.
